Everyone is realistic. Noone thinks that a football game will solve the problem. But if it makes even to only one person think about the possibility of Palestina and Israel living in peace, it'll be worth it.

Yes.. As long as they shout slogans like peace, freedom, etc, it doesnt matter what else they do, even if its completely contradictory. And if you even think of opening your mouth, they label you the source of all problems in the region, just like Pumba did.

Final score:

Barcelona 2-1 Peace Team

Deco and Maxi Lopez scored the goals, but I don't know who scored for the Peace team
